Default TPT banned me

I've seen some other posts and see I am not the only victim of the mod somewhatshocked on TPT. After being banned for 30 days for pointing out his accusations against me were incorrect I returned and asked who I could appeal his actions too. I was then banned forever.
Just wanted to vent. Good therapy.
Thanks.

There are several people who were banned, at least for a short time, at that forum. I'm not sure why they do that, but it certainly does happen.

What really got me ticked was the permanent ban for requesting an appeal. Oh well.

You have come to the right place! We may not have as much activity as TPT, but we do respect our members.

Indeed. I've been back and forth here for years but always return. Never understood why activity dropped off. But I have been as guilty as everyone else for not being around. Hope to be a more frequent participate.

In short a moderator accused me of posting snails for sale in a local section in order to avoid who knows what. Even though I had always posted in the for sale section for years so what was there to gain by posting out of for sale. I objected, was accused of arguing with a mod and suspended for 30 days.
Several months later I returned and asked that same mod how to appeal his decision to clear my record and he banned me for life.
I had been a member for years.
But, I'm mostly over it but wonder who else he is bullying.

Here at APC we don't tolerate spam, abusive rude behavior, or post padding just to use the sales forum. But other than those things, you would have to do something pretty outrageous even to get an infraction, much less being banned. Even before I became a moderator, I really valued the polite, helpful, and generous spirit of this forum.

Michael, I'm not saying this to merely to stroke the ego of another fellow Texan or as someone who grew up in Arlington, but I have always felt safe and civil under your watchful eyes. I even remember years back we were talking about soil and capping material and you moderated that discussion and, invariably, the discussion started going in tangents and you deftly and expertly got us all back on track. You were kind and firm.

When I was a moderator back on Aquatic Plant Enthusiasts, GLA's old forum, I think I only banned one person for extreme disrespect in those 10 years that I served and the evidence of their rudeness was left visible for the public.

Ever since Kyle sold TPT to that commercial pet concern, it does seem to have become, a little less kind and feels more like Trader's Village than a community resource.

jrIL, I'm sorry that happened to you. Their loss is our gain. Though you're a senior member of this forum already, maybe a second welcome is not out of order .
